* OffModel: During the cross-examination of Marge, when the Blue Haired Lawyer asks her for her opinion on Dr. Nick Riviera, [[https://frinkiac.com/img/S02E10/1019902.jpg a shot of him mistakenly has him appear in both the foreground and background]], while previous iterations of the same shot, such as [[https://frinkiac.com/img/S02E10/1008441.jpg this one]], correctly has him only appear in the foreground.

* AffablyEvil: Satan in this episode is quite pleasant and polite to Bart.



* AndYouWereThere: When Bart awakes after being hit by a car to find Homer, Marge and Lisa surrounding him, along with bottom-feeding attorney Lionel Hutz grinning cheesily at him:
-->'''Bart''': I had the most wonderful dream! You were there, and you, and you... ''[to Hutz]'' You, I've never seen before.
** Seeing as Bart had just been to Hell, his remark that he saw the others there is particularly hilarious. He's such a horrible child.

* AndYouWereThere: After talking to Satan, Bart looks up at Hell's ceiling and sees the family, with Marge calling out to him. When Bart awakes after being hit by a car to find Homer, Marge and Lisa surrounding him, along with bottom-feeding attorney Lionel Hutz grinning cheesily at him:
-->'''Bart''': I had did go away, Mom! I was miles and miles and miles away, writhing in agony in the most wonderful dream! You pits of Hell. And [[BumblingDad you]] were there, and you, [[{{Housewife}} you]], and you... [[MiddleChildSyndrome you]], and [[BrainyBaby you]]... ''[to Hutz]'' You, You I've never seen before.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: This is one of the few ''"Simpsons"'' episodes, save for the ''"Treehouse of Horror"'' ones, where the title appears on the screen at the start of the episode.

* EvenEvilHasStandards: Smithers was the only one who was actually concerned about Bart's safety during the initial hit. When Burns tells his side of the story, he switches and exaggerates this scene. Even Smithers looks unimpressed by this testimony.
--> '''Smithers:''' Uh oh, I think the boy's hurt.

Added DiffLines:

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: It was a pretty open and shut case (particularly given how Burns incriminates himself during the trial), but Homer blew it by rejecting the initial offer and listening to Hutz.

* TheBadGuyWins: Homer could've taken the offer and walked away but let his ego get the better of him. Mr. Burns manages to find out about the phony doctors after overhearing Marge. Then he has her come to the stand on count the next day. Not surprisingly, she winds up blowing it for Homer and winning the case for Mr. Burns.

Added DiffLines:

* KickTheDog: Mr. Burns scathingly tells Smithers to "just give [Bart] a nickel and let's get going", showing his obvious lack of concern for Bart's safety.
** Marge comparing the "hardships" of Bart's injuries to the $5 she pays him to take out the trash every week. While Dr. Nick did exaggerate Bart's injuries and Homer's lawsuit was frivolous, Marge seems remarkably unconcerned about the fact that Bart was injured at all after the hub-bub died down.

* BackhandedApology: Zigzagged. Though Marge genuinely feels bad about ruining Homer's lawsuit, she words it as wanting to "apologise for doing the right thing".



* EvenEvilHasStandards: Smithers was the only one who was actually concerned about Bart's safety during the initial hit. When Burns tells his side of the story, he switches and exaggerates this scene word for word.

* GrayAndGrayMorality: Mr. Burns is just as wretched as ever and was completely unconcerned when he hit Bart. However, Homer's lawsuit against him is [[FrivolousLawsuit completely frivolous]] as Bart's injuries weren't particularly grievous or expensive which is why Burns' win doesn't make him a KarmaHoudini. Everyone's in the wrong here.

* NeverMyFault: Homer refused to take Mr. Burns' offer, and Marge admits that she doesn't like the situation they're in, including Homer's greed and "phony doctors". Burns overhears this, and has Marge up to the stands to confess everything. Homer now isn't sure if he loves her anymore for blowing their chance at $1 million.

** Vocal example: Lionel Hutz sounded more like Troy [=McClure=] in this episode, no doubt because Phil Hartman was still [[VocalEvolution finding his character.]]
